On the last episode, where our MCU panel talked about Iron Man 3, Michael mentioned that he and William Bruce West had a conversation about the same movie for Michael's former Christmas movie podcast.

AfterLUNCH's 50th episode coincided with Michael's road trip south to see a bunch of friends he hasn't seen in a long time (and one he's never met face-to-face before).
